    How does the ration dispenser work? How can it be refilled?



    How does /RankPromote work? What does it do, what terms does it promote someone in?

    /dispenseradd
    It can't run out of rations therefore it cannot be refilled.

    And I've honestly got no idea what /RankPromote does, I don't even think it works.

    Did you change the ration item at all? It has to have the same name otherwise it'll dispense nothing.

    When you press E on the dispenser, you're saying it's not dispensing anything at all? That is most likely because the Clockwork.item:CreateInstance in the dispenser's code isn't matching with the ration's sh_file name.

    Code:
    entity:CallOnRemove("CreateRation", function()
    if (IsValid(activator)) then
    local itemTable = Clockwork.item:CreateInstance("ration");

    Clockwork has a built-in faction ranking system, which is where RankPromote and RankDemote come from. It allows you to assign a character a rank within their faction without them having to have any tag in their name, whilst being easy to modify and allowing you to set models + other properties for each rank. Below is an example of rank configuration:
    Code:
    FACTION.ranks = {
        ["RCT"] = {
            position = 5,
            class = "Metropolice Recruit"
        },
        ["EpU"] = {
            position = 4,
            class = "Elite Metropolice",
            model = "models/leet_police2.mdl"
        },
        ["OfC"] = {
            position = 3,
            class = "Elite Metropolice",
            model = "models/policetrench.mdl"
        },
        ["DvL"] = {
            position = 2,
            class = "Elite Metropolice",
            model = "models/eliteshockcp.mdl"
        },
        ["SeC"] = {
            position = 1,
            canPromote = 3,
            class = "Elite Metropolice",
            model = "models/sect_police2.mdl"
        },
        ["SCN"] = {
            class = "Metropolice Scanner",
            isScanner = true,
            maxArmor = 0
        },
        ["SYNTH"] = {
            class = "Metropolice Scanner",
            isScanner = true,
            maxHealth = 200,
            maxArmor = 0
        }
    };
    The position field indicates the rank's standing in the faction, with a lower position meaning higher in the hierarchy. canPromote states the maximum position that the given rank can promote up to. maxHealth and maxArmor take priority over the same field for the faction table, allowing different ranks to have different starting amounts of health and armour.

    Although I've used MPF as an example, this system does not by default replace all of the functionality of the Combine ranking mechanism built into HL2RP. This means the ranking system is most effective for introducing ranks to non-Combine roles by default.
